I just finished Hit Me by Peter Thompson. My mind is still reeling.

Hit Me is a suspenseful thriller about a "fixer of problems" named Charley Fieldner. He is an average looking man, a husband, a father, a brother...and he just happens to kill people for a living, for the Agency. Charley is a very likeable guy, one you would trust to coach your kids in soccor or have over for a barbeque with your family. I found myself assigning Charley as the victim in this book and rooting for him.

Peter Thompson's third book Hit Me grabbed me from the start and held me tightly to the end. Once again he has put together a well written suspense novel with well written characters you can't help but like. Charley, the book's "hero"/ narrator is a professional hit man who received his next hit. The problem is he is the hit. Charley may be a killer but I couldn't help but like him and of course root for him. The story is fast paced, clearly written, at the right times suspenseful. Peter Thompso ...more

Hit Me is a clever, compelling book with great central premise. Well-written, unexpected, and with great pace, it draws the reader effortlessly through its twists and turns, unfolding to a really satisfying conclusion.
It’s a thriller and a mystery and a roller-coaster ride : you’ll not be disappointed and you’ll want your friends to read it too. But you may find, as I did, that it stays with you longer than that. Beneath the central premise is another killer move: this contract killer isn’t the

This is a great novel. I loved everything about it right from the basic premise of the story: a hit man gets a contract to kill… himself?! I was looking forward to reading it and I was not disappointed. It has everything from action, fights, mystery, even a bit of ‘whodunnit’ to love and family life all mixed up in one book. Peter J Thompson has managed to weave all these elements together nicely creating a character that is full of life (at least for now?). This is all wrapped up in a tale cram ...more

When I first saw the information about this book, I thought that it was a very interesting concept. A hit man who receives a contract to kill HIMSELF! Who would have put out a contract on a simple family man? Well-developed characters and a great deal of thought and detail have been put into this story. Absolutely loved it

What a very unique perspective on crime. Mr Thompson brings this story to your mind within the very first few words. I was totally hooked into the story so hard that it was impossible to put the book down. It is a wonderful pleasure to get to read this story. I plan on picking up the next book as soon as I can. I can’t wait to see what the author has in mind for the next book’s perspective.

Good solid story.

I really enjoyed the characters and the story. My only complaint is that I don't have all my questions answered. You have to read it to know what I am talking about.

Wow, what a thriller. Charley is a hit man in Daddy’s business. The strange thing is, he’s the next target. Totally gripping.

Peter Thompson grew up on the east side of Chicago, in the shadow of the steel mills where the air was sooty and smelled of sulfur. His life wasn’t always so gritty, but the grit and realism finds its way into his thrillers. He has always loved stories of every kind, and one of his joys is finding a way to get inside character’s heads, seeing the world as they see it and feeling their triumphs, pa ...more
